Long skirt with yoke

4.5/5

Let’s see how to draft the pattern of this long and wide skirt with built in front yoke.

Start from a basic block with ankle length.

Step 1

Start from a basic block with ankle length.

On both front and back flare 12-15cm from the side and square down from the dart to the hem.

On front only, draw the button stand and the new shape parallel to the waist.

Step 2

Cut through the line coming from the darts, close them and flare the two pieces.

On front, draw a line coming from the new waist shape to the hem and cut through both lines.

Step 3

This way you can flare the front more then the back.

Step 4

This is the finished pattern: front, back, button stand, waistband.

We love it!
